CC Approval #2 :-)

[ Edited ]

My credit union approved me for their Visa :-)  Not for the $1,500 limit I requested ..... but for $500.   The rate is yucky at 17.9 but she said the do reviews every 6mos so there is a chance for increase of limit and/or decrease of rate at that time.

 

She said my report (EX) showed some derog marks but they looked paid so that was good.    I assume she means the two HSBC COs from 2008 as they do show a 0 balance. 

 

I'm just happy to be 2 for 3 on my mini app spree from the weekend!!!

Thanks everyone!  

 

LS-  seeing as Discover and my CU will be doing a review at 6mos I'm wondering if I should wait on that app...especially if they also pull EX - I can't get GE to approve me off of EX for anything it seems like haha.
